Wonder Works' holiday 'Elfstravaganza' is this Saturday at the Belle Hall store
The holiday season is here, and that means festivals, shows, excitement and more! But one extravaganza of sorts to attend is a little more “elfie” than others. That being Wonder Works Elfstravaganza! This free, family festival will be held at Wonder Works in Belle Hall Shopping Center in Mount Pleasant on Saturday, November 14, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In its fifth year, Elfstravaganza celebrates the spirit of the holiday season with a day filled with free activities, holiday treats, and the favorite toys that will top every child’s Christmas list.
With more than 20 national toy companies in attendance, a plethora of toys and games will be out for children to play with and let their imaginations run wild. The Crayola Coloring Tent, Mattel Building World, face painting, writing letters to Santa, decorating cookies, and more free activities will be available all day for event goers. And, a lot of Star Wars surprises will be in store including a visit from the official 501st Legion Carolina Garrison.
This holiday event wouldn’t be complete without photos with everyone’s favorite Elf on the Shelf, while Chanda Bell, author of The Elf on the Shelf®: A Christmas Tradition will be signing copies of her beloved book. To top it off, every child in attendance will receive a free toy.
But what makes this day more magical is that it is held on “Neighborhood Toy Store Day”, where toy stores across the country celebrate the joy and magic of the holidays while giving back to their area communities.
“At the heart of Elfstravaganza, we celebrate the community’s spirit during the holiday season. We have local toy makers, local charities, local vendors, local artists, and local entertainment,” said Christine Osborne, owner of Wonder Works Toy Stores.
Local charities will also host activity stations to raise money for their causes including Keys for Hope, Hugs for Harper, Samaritan’s Purse, and MUSC Children’s Hospital. Parents and children will be in awe of the live magic shows from local, teen magician Caleb Alexander. This young gentleman is now a national sensation and has been seen on Jimmy Fallon and Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, to name a couple. Other popular Charleston artists will perform live music includfing Haley Mae Campbell and the Lauren Hall Band.
Islanders don’t need to worry about missing the fun, because the event has been moved earlier in the day to accommodate Daniel Island Park Day goers. “We invite everyone to come to experience the magic of Elfstravaganza before or after you leave Park Day,” added Osborne.
Free Parking for Elfstravaganza is available at Belle Hall Shopping Center and Seacoast Church. For more information on activities and fun visit www.WonderWorksToys.com.
